Disappointment Over Comments Made by Commissioners Regarding Voting Security

Dear Editor:

In regard to your recent article “Voting Security Debate Lands In Teller County” in the 09/13/22 edition, I would like to let your readers know that I was greatly disappointed by the remarks made by a majority of the board of county commissioners.


I attended at the 09/08/22 meeting of the board. During their discussion they gave credence to election deniers. They spoke about concerns they held regarding the voter rolls and ballot harvesting.


Their comments were a disservice to our bedrock foundation of our democratic republic, which are free and fair elections. I was compelled to rise and tell them that was the case and I clearly was not joking.
